Hi,

OK, I got it solved.

Now, the problem is I need some experimental starting values for my capacitors for the COMMON SOURCE amp.

Thanks.

 6th October 2008, 10:56 PM #3 diyAudio Member     Join Date: Dec 2005 Location: the north C vs R-load gives the lower rolloff freq (-3dB) For such I use: uF x kOhm The higher this value ( C x RL ), the lower Rolloff Frequency My target value is at least 47 uFkOhm. This gives -3dB at 3.38 Hz For 100 kOhm load, I this means 0.47uF (470nF). Formula: -3dB frequency = 1/[ 2pi x C x R ] ... where 2pi = 6.28 uFkOhm value = Frequency -3dB 10 = 15.9 Hz 22 = 7.23 Hz 47 = 3.38 Hz 100 = 1.59 Hz (if you would use 1uF for 100 kOhm load. __________________ lineup
 6th October 2008, 11:09 PM #4 diyAudio Member     Join Date: Dec 2005 Location: the north To match C2 = 470 nF (47 uFkOhm) you will need make input cap C1 so that you get a value >= 47 uFkOhm Otherwise input rolloff will be limit of lower freq rolloff C1 sees: R1 // R2 (6k2 and 4k7) The combined load (=the input impedance) is: 1 [ (1/R1) + (1/R2) ] ... which give 2673 Ohm = 2k67 47/2.67 = 17.6 uF ... to give 47 uFkOhm So, C1 needs to be 18 uF or more, to match the output RC value __________________ lineup
